So basically I am PISSED OFF. THIS CROSSES MY LINE IN THE SAND! I have personally been in a poverty starvation experience were my only source of food was DEER MEAT. I was a vegetarian than but had no choice. I gladly accepted the food with gratitude. I think that as a homeless person that they have the ability to be grateful for any meal despite their preferences taste, vegetarian etc.. I am sincerely outraged at the lack of common sense shown by these public servants. This unconscious lack of critical thinking and conscience is getting to my breaking point. They have once again crossed the line and this is the last straw. I am NO LONGER GOING TO BEND OVER AND TAKE IT LIKE A (use you’re imagination) TO THE GROWING NANNY STATE. If my ancient ancestors could eat deer meat in their times of need then its good enough for me or anyone else in theirs. STOP ALLOWING THESE UNCONSTITUTIONAL ACTS TO CONTINUE TO RAPE YOURS AND OTHERS FREEDOMS AND RIGHTS TO HAVE THEIR BASIC NEEDS MEET AND RESPECTED. In summary I have submitted the following letter to the following email address : firstname.lastname@example.org and I recommend you copy and paste this or write your own complaint holding their feet to the flames.
Subject: YOU CANNOT HIDE FROM KARMA-Health Dept.: Homeless Can’t Eat Deer Meat
I am writing this message to you to remind you that you are public servants and that your jobs are to protect the best interests of the people.
The fact that you have destroyed food that was going to the less fortunate is a new low. People have been eating deer meat for thousands of year yet
you feel the need to destroy it for what ever reason. But I’ll will have you know that you are not our gods or royalty and stated in our constitutional
rights is our right to not obey an unconstitutional law. Now I am sure someone reading this has at least a shred of a conscience. Now let me state
again YOU OUR PUBLIC SERVANTS AUTHORIZED THE DESTRUCTION OF FOOD GOING TO THE HOMELESS does not sound to good. Now as our
public servants one of you must have realized this state law was counter productive and not in the best interest of the people. I have personally
been in a situation were I was starving in poverty and the only food I got was deer meat and I ate it and I was a vegetarian then. I do not eat meat
as I have gotten out of that situation thanks to deer meat. You can see how this brazenly ignores the needs of the people. I demand a public
apology and a removal of the law which made it illegal for homeless people to get deer meat. This was an illegal act. If we cannot expect you
public servants to use COMMON SENSE how can we expect you to represent our needs? In closing you either own up to your mistakes and
compensate those harmed by this foolishness or you continue to hide behind you ego and pride. If you decide not to own up I FEEL BAD FOR YOU
because your day is coming to face your own KARMA and its your eternity to answer to. REMEMBER THEIR IS FORGIVENESS WHEN YOU MAKE
THE CHOICE TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY AND BE ACCOUNTABLE. I don’t want a bunch of “oh I was just following orders” you know what is right
and wrong and it is your duty not to follow an unconstitutional law.
